Divergent Fates and other worlds

Brooklyn Amari exists to destroy the world—but she doesn’t want to.

It’s not every day a person finds out their father is an ancient demon, two powerful armies expect her to end creation, and everything people think about celestial beings is completely wrong. Such news would break most people. Fortunately, Brooklyn’s tough. She’s also kinda lazy, which works, since saving the world requires she do nothing at all.

Good chance her life has gone off the rails when giant lightning-spitting birds are the least of her problems. Her friend is in deadly trouble with a gang and the warmongers hatch a devious new plan to destroy the Armistice—a.k.a the world—without her.

Sitting on her ass ignoring everything won’t cut it anymore.

Worse, she can’t stop thinking about the eco-terrorist mage attacking industrial sites across the country. Chasing people down is totally not in her job description as a firefighter, but such a strong psychic fixation is a big red flag. If Brooklyn’s limp excuse for a conscience doesn’t wake up, something bad is going to happen… probably to a bunch of innocent people who don’t deserve it.

Freeing a centuries-old murderer from a ghost jar usually ends badly.

Sarah has finally adjusted to unlife, at last comfortable with herself. Her college classes are going well even if she isn’t fully committed to her current major. Her one frustration is her boyfriend always being too busy to spend time with her, but college is temporary. Love is forever.

Or so they say—her definition of ‘forever’ is a little different now.

Worry about her love life pales next to the constant paranormal weirdness invading her personal space. Nothing major really, only her brother trafficking with demons and one little sister interrupting the time continuum over kittens. The moment Sophia’s extreme niceness resulted in a killer from the 1700s escaping a spirit trap, Sarah had a feeling it would bite her in the ass.

The teeth have finally arrived.

Furious at centuries of captivity, the wraith causes mayhem in London. If Sarah ignores it, innocent people are going to die… but dragging her kid sister across the ocean has bad idea written all over it.

It started with the insects.

The mass die-offs had been a warning unheeded. Before society realized the danger, the Earth had inexorably begun a transformation into a place where life could not survive. A small group found shelter in the Arc, an underground refuge safe from the toxins ravaging the surface.

After centuries of darkness, humanity’s second chance is running out—and Raven Wilder knows it.

Her job fixing the machinery in the Arc makes her aware of how close everything is to breaking down. When the systems fail, the last survivors of the human race will suffocate in the tunnels meant to protect them from the deadly air outside—starting with the most vulnerable. Unfortunately, in an example of history repeating itself, those in charge dismiss her concerns.

When her six-year-old begins showing signs of oxygen deprivation, Raven refuses to go quietly into oblivion.

She will break every rule to keep her daughter alive.
